In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance.

Medicated Feed Mill License Application—21 CFR Part 515 (OMB Control Number 0910-0037)—Extension

In the Federal Register of November 19, 1999 (64 FR 63195), FDA published a final rule implementing the feed mill licensing provisions of the Animal Drug Availability Act of 1966 (Public Law 104-250). The rule added a new 21 CFR part 515 to provide the requirements for medicated feed mill licensing.

The rule sets forth the information to be included in medicated feed mill license applications and supplemental applications. It also sets forth the criteria for, among other things, the approval and refusal to approve a medicated feed mill license application, as well as the criteria for the revocation and/or suspension of a license.

Respondents to this collection of information are individuals or firms that manufacture medicated animal feed.

FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows:

Table 1.—Estimated Annual Reporting Burden1

21 CFR SectionNo. of RespondentsAnnual Frequency per ResponsesTotal Annual ResponsesHours per ResponseTotal Hours
Total Burden Hours36.6
1 There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection of information.

Table 2.—Estimated Annual Recordkeeping Burden1

21 CFR SectionNo. of RecordkeepersAnnual Frequency per RecordkeepingTotal Annual RecordsHours per RecordkeeperTotal Hours
1 There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection of information.

The estimated number of respondents is derived from agency data on the number of medicated feed manufacturers entering the market each year, changing ownership or address, requesting voluntary revocation of a medicated feed mill license, and those involved in revocation and/or suspension of a license. The estimate of the time required for this reporting requirement is based on the agency communication with industry.
